During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
We provide competent, responsible, and compassionate court-appointed community volunteers to advocate for each child who faces abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment; our goal, to restore their well-being and ensure the eminent right to a safe, nurturing, and permanent home.
The CASA of Berks County program recruits, screens, and trains community volunteers to become appointed by a judge to represent the best interest of a child in court. CASA volunteers work to help ensure a safe and permanent home for the child as quickly as possible. CASA envisions a safe and positive future for all children facing abuse and neglect to break the cycle through the provision of support to become healthy, empowered adults. CASA volunteers come from all walks of life with a variety of professional, educational, and ethnic backgrounds. Regardless of their backgrounds or training, all of them simply want to help the most vulnerable members of their community.
